Join us this month in our commitment to representing Black culture fully, authentically and thoughtfully. We encourage our audiences to embrace diversity in all forms and to see the humanity in every Black face, regardless of sexual orientation. TV One celebrates freedom and leads with love!

This 2024 PRIDE campaign shines a light on high-achieving Black Americans and celebrate all that they have accomplished. As we share their compelling stories from childhood to coming out, career success, and everything in between, we hope to provide role models for younger Black and Brown members of the community who don’t often see the LGBTQ community represented in diverse ways.  

Our spotlight is on: Brittney Sykes, Eugene Daniels, Paul Wharton, Karine Jean-Pierre, and Be Steadwell
